I'll definitely keep playing since it's my only league, but I feel like I'm cheating somehow
That setting is pretty shallow IMO. Theoretically everyone is starting a top 12 player at each IF position and top 36 players in OF.
True, I suppose it is shallow. But the keeper factor still boggles my mind.
We are allowed to keep up to 12 players and you lose the round they were drafted in. In this case, I'd get them with the last picks since they were dropped.
12 keepers is WAY too many...in my 12-team keeper, we only kept 5, with the exception of this year (it was voted on and raised to 6). Also, we run 7x7 cats, 2 extra util spots, and 8 bench spots (as a result, most prospects/sleepers are gone, mostly drafted). Generally, around 1/5 of your roster should be your maximum number of keepers.
